Hard to get one “do-it-all” load for all of your revolvers. Like Charlie said, what’s good for one isn’t always good for the other. Interesting, though.

Doggone lil snubs are hard to work with…charge a case that’ll work in the snub and end up fragging the HP in a 4″ or longer barrel.
Kinda like women, sometimes hard to please!
